I took a detour from reading Unglued and decided to embark on a class at church, Self-Confrontation.  I must say that my eyes have been opened and I have been challenged daily to put a mirror up in front of my face.  This class is 8 weeks long and the book is almost 500 pages.  Ok, before you panic as I did when I first saw the book, the class is only covering the first 8 chapters, and the rest is up to us to continue in the study.    

So, what in the world is self-confrontation?  It’s basically what it says, confronting yourself about yourself.  It delves into your walk with God and every concept has scripture attached to it so that you don’t have to take the author’s word for it, take God’s.  We talk about how we can change biblically, how God’s word has every answer to every problem, how the word is so completely sufficient, and how all of this works in our lives. 

During week three, we studied about prayer.  I discovered all the examples that Jesus provided for prayer and the blessings that come from spending time with Him.  I wrote down scriptures that pertained to the areas I needed to work on and ended up with about 30 index cards full of verses that I need to really concentrate on. 

Matthew 7:1-5 is the premise of the book of in-depth biblical discipleship.  I have to include these verses below because my group had such a fun time memorizing and reciting these:

7 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

I’m beyond grateful for having the confidence, through God, to self-confront, it’s changing me in ways I never imagined and the changes I know will stay with me for the rest of my life.
